Where? Zürich, SUI
Recommended by: Alan Grant from Ireland
Orel Füssli is a chain of bookstores with branches to be found all over Switzerland, several of them being in Zürich. However this specific store, known as "The Bookshop", is the only bookstore in town which focuses exclusively on books in English. You can find a huge selection of the latest releases in fiction and non-fiction, but also time-tested classics, not to mention a strong children's section, where readings are held every first Saturday of the month.
The store's offer doesn't fall short of any major bookstores in English speaking countries. Its stock of over 30 000 books in English should satisfy the desires of the most demanding book-hunters and in case you seek something the store doesn't have on stock, you can make an order. You can also check the newest arrivals in different categories on their website. Note that this is not a small independent store on the corner, so beware of the rather high prices, there's no second hand section either.
